Vegan Banana and Walnut Breakfast Muffins

By Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Healthy, Jenny O'Neill, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

Sometimes you need a quick grab and go breakfast. As for gluten free and vegan options, fruit is the answer of course, or gluten free oats. So I’ve combined the two into yummy hearty muffins that you can bake the night before. These muffins have no cholesterol, no added fats, and no refined white sugar (as the muffins you buy in coffee shops do). Not to mention they are packed with fibre, potassium from both the bananas and walnuts. Along…

Oil Free Sun Dried Tomato Hummus – Vegan Recipes

By Dublin, Food, Healthy, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Mindfulness, Motivational, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

I love hummus. Everyone loves hummus, especially vegans. It’s great on toast, with salads, as a sandwich filling and so much more. The only thing is store bought hummus and most traditional recipes use a lot of oil in their recipes. Now extra virgin olive oil has plenty of health benefits, omegas and essential fatty acids that are important in any diet, vegan or not. But, when you have a hummus addiction like me all this oil starts to accumulate,…

Raw Vegan Lemon Cheesecake

By Dublin, Food, HappyFood, Ireland, Jenny O'Neill, Mindfulness, Recipes, Vegan, Wellbeing

A few weeks ago I was going to a birthday dinner, a 24th birthday, where 5 out of the 10 there were vegan, the rest avid carnivores. I volunteered to make the birthday cake, someone suggested cheesecake so I thought here’s my chance to show the meat eaters how amazing vegan food is (on the sly) This is a combination of a few recipes I’d watched on Youtube before and mostly just me making it up on the spot. I’m…

Don’t Booze It To Lose it!

By Mindfulness, Motivational, Wellbeing, Yoga

Alcohol is a huge part of our culture and it is extremely hard to avoid a few drinking sessions at this time of year. There is nothing wrong with going out and enjoying yourself but the one thing I want to communicate to everybody is to be careful. The majority of bad things that have happened in my life have been the product of alcohol abuse. The reasons these bad things would happen is because I would go out drinking with an end…

How The Heck Do I Start Practicing Mindfulness? And Why Do I Need to?

By Dublin, Matt Quigley, Meditation, Mindfulness, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

Wouldn’t it be great to be completely aware of our actions rather than just acting them out? Or better still wouldn’t it be amazing if we learned to stop ourselves before we said or did something that we’ll either immediately or shortly after regret? And if you don’t know what I’m talking about at all maybe you know about thinking about something that worries you or stresses you out to the point where you don’t feel like you’re anything else…

Mindfulness and Me. One Simple Tip That Helped Me Might Help You.

By Meditation, Mindfulness, Restorative, Wellbeing, Yoga, YogaHub

  A few months ago I had an episode which was the beginning of the change in my life for the better. I had pretty much  3 years of perpetual ‘fight-or-flight mode’ from when I started YogaHub right up until this day. I think it was back in March. This episode was brought about by everything becoming more organised and under control. The managers had joined YogaHub and roles were delegated out and everything around me was calming down and…

Meditation Is Medication; It Ain’t Easy But It Works

By Dublin, Meditation, Mindfulness, Motivational, Wellbeing

The title of this post might seem extremely profound and to be perfectly honest if I had read that title after my first attempt at meditation I would have thought it was a load of nonsense. How I got started Roughly 12 months ago I was still struggling with chronic physical pain. I was stressed beyond belief and I spent most of the day thinking negatively about every single sensation of pain I was experiencing. My mind was working on…
